'I Love You Phillip Morris' is delayed no more!

Via Variety:

The Jim Carrey-Ewan McGregor starrer "I Love You Phillip Morris" isn't getting much love these days.

Dark comedy's theatrical release has been pushed back from April 30 to July 30. Consolidated Pictures Group is distributing the film.

Despite its top star billing, "Phillip Morris" has been plagued with distribution distress since premiering at Sundance in 2009, largely because of the film's challenging subject matter.

From "Bad Santa" scribes Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, "Phillip Morris" tells the story of a married con man (Carrey) who falls in love with his cellmate (McGregor). Pic is based on the life of con man/artist Steven Jay Russell.

"Phillip Morris" will open in a limited run, and begin expanding on Aug. 6.

-Glad to hear it...thoughts?


  1. Sorry this took so long to get up...long day.

  2. That being said, I'm very happy to know this film will actually see the light of day...

  3. My interest is usually piqued pretty early on when it comes to gay-themed films, especially when it has some pretty big names in it. This film, however, is not rocking my world at all. I guess time will indeed tell.
